Year 2

Welcome to Class 2P and Class 2S

Miss Sprague

This year I am looking forward to...

I am looking forward to delving into our History and Geography topic, particularly teaching the children all about the fantastic city that we live in! I am really excited to help the children build their reading skills and use them across their learning.

My goal is to create a calm and engaging learning environment that create memorable experiences for all children. 

My top tip for learning is...

Never be afraid to make mistakes. My motto is "mistakes are good, that's how we learn". 

Miss Hanson

This year I am looking forward to...

Delivering the Year 2 curriculum, in particular exploring our DT project where we will be making chairs for a character from our favourite book. I am passionate about children's well-being, so I am very excited about delivering our PSHE and PE sessions.

I aim to create an environment within my classroom that nurtures individuality and supports lifelong learning.

My top tip for learning is...

Always try your hardest! Even though it can sometimes be a challenge, it is so worth it to create wonderful pieces of work.

Everyone a Mayflower Reader | Hear Me Become A Reader

There is nothing quite like playing back something that you have rehearsed or performed and just... listening: feeling pride in your successes; noticing the areas for improvement and acting on them. This is what real learning is all about!

'Hear Me Become A Reader' is our way of enabling pupils to journal their reading journey; giving pupils ownership over their development within the subject. With more and more pupils uploading audio readings on a weekly basis, we wanted to make this process more interactive and even easier than ever.

With this in mind, 'Hear Me Become A Reader' has changed platforms - no more weekly assignments or uploading of separate audio files. With Microsoft OneNote, pupils now record and upload on the platform itself, to a confidential section in the 'class notebook' - just between the child and their teacher. What's more, pupils (and parents) can comment under each recording, as well as adding to a 'collaboration space' where pupils can recommend new books to their classmates. There is also a 'content library' containing key reading resources to help equip your child with the tools they may need to become more fluent and comprehensive readers.

The same expectations of a weekly recorded reading will be required as part of your child's home learning diet; but within the class notebook, pupils could easily upload a recording every night of the week if they wanted to (as has been requested by pupils and parents).

If using a laptop or PC, pupils can still access their class notebook via their TEAMS account, or if using a tablet or mobile phone, you can download the Microsoft OneNote APP from your APP store and sign in using your child's MS TEAMS login details (please note it can sometimes take up to 24 hours to sync notebooks).

Have a go and explore the class notebook - the more your child uses it, the more confident they will become at leading their own learning. We can't wait to see how pupils use this new tool to enhance their learning at Mayflower!

Please see the links below, which provide step-by-step instructions in 'logging in' and 'recording your reading'.
